OROVILLE, Calif. -- The Butte College football team has been on the road since construction began on its new athletic facility, press box and scoreboard last season. But very soon they'll be playing in front of a home crowd again.
The $10.5 million project was made possible by a school facilities bond called Measure J.
The first floor of the 16,000 square-foot building will have a concession stand, restrooms, and a 5,500 square-foot high-performance center.
“I think the [athletes and coaches] are very deserving," athletic director Craig Rigsbee. "I think theyre going to come together and it’s only going to enhance our recruiting ability, and its going to enhance our whole athletic program."
There will be ten coaching offices, meeting rooms, film rooms, and three Kinesiology classrooms on the second floor.
Butte College will also be upgrading its press box, sound system, and scoreboard.
The grand opening is November 16. It will also be the Roadrunners' homecoming.
